TO BUILD DAM
AT FORKS RIVER
Au electric liht plant and WHter
works are amoiiK extensive improve
ments under consideration by W.
Kohh WiiiuiiH at hiri towntite near the
falls of Hood riu-r. Mr. Winans has
alio under way a project for the cou
Htruction of a st-riun of damn at the
forku of the river. He est i ma ten that
it will lie poH.-il'le to develop 50,0Ul
horsepower at this point of the river.
Mr. WinaUH lata granted a free
ritfht of way tl.ronnh two miles of
his towunite to the Mount Hood rail
way, which company has agreed to
establish a station between the Win
aiiM hotel und the bank of the river.
There have already been frequent in
ipiirieH for propeity in the Wiuan
townsite, and Mr. WinaiiH expects to
make a reut many sales thia coming

dynamo which is to furnish the lights

Winaus will bo furnished from a large
spring on the bank of the rier. liy

feet Mr. Winaus llgures on a 200-foot
With the comi letion of the Mount
Hood railroad, great things .may be
expected from the town of Winaus.
Maguiiiceut water power is near at
huud, which should not be so very
expensive to harness. Mr. Wiuans
is llguring on a market for his electric
euergy in Portland, but would prefer
to secure the location of factories and
tell the power near nt huud.

"There tins In en practicully no oppo

imperative tlm ev ry property owner

means much for t'ie fanners."
l'ortlanih r Makes Summer Home Here.
Donald McKay of Portland has es
tablished his household in his new sum
mer home, and the little ones are hav
ing the time of heir lives. With 'real !
milk, eugs fresh from the factory -d j
cgetalilcs anil hints ot all kinds such
as grow only in Hood lliver, these hap
p youngsters will e;it and sleep and
cloisc Hie sipiirrels, play hide-and-seek
with the birds, .r nv and flourish like a
green hay tree. Mr. McKay lias shown
coiisuma'c wisdom in thus building so
pleasant a home une ng the oaks and
pines of the Frankton neighborhood. If
those of Portland who are able to do so
hut km w the delights of summer lite in
our woods, in the pure, sweet Hood Kiv
er air ami sunshine, away from 'the
restraints of eity life, with its noise and
di.st, and foul, sootv, disease laden air,
the hills of Hood idver would moil he
c )vered with just siic'i com inodious, com
fortable home ;s this of Mr. McKay's,
.mil the children, instead of growing up
weaklings in mind and body, would
grow up sturdy, i..ggd specimens of
our race, and i" pa' d and develop into
glorious manhood and womanhood in
stead of winning hrough an unhcalth
ful, painful existence to an early grave.
This is the plain, -iinple truth, and like
many other s in lar truths is over
looked to the r h' rt by the mass of
mankind. May Sir. McKay prove a
pioneer ;n a . hit 1 exodus from Port
land tot. ip itn igorating climate of the

WILL WATER RIGHT.
ENHANCE LAND VALUE
Willow Flat, East Hood River Valley,
May 3. We attended the water meet
ing at Pine Grove Friday night, and
were much difappoinU'd at the results.
From the discussion we infer that the
part of the valley lyingeast of Ncal'creek
doesn't want and has no use for water.
The bonding bsue was practically re
pudiated by the consumers under the
Neal creek lateral. Under the bonding
plan it is not a question whether water
will benefit an orchard, but the real
question is, "Will a water right enhance
the value of a ranch."
The West Skiers evidently believe
it will, for they have worked out three
or four different propositions before try
ing a bonded district. They are now
up to the last ditch and we hope to
see them into it in a short time with
plows and scrapers headed toward
(ireen Point and Sandy Flat. If it is
practical for these ranchers to build
from so far up the river and over so dif
ficult a route, w hy cannot the east sid
ers,with more than double the amount of
cultivated land and with tw ice as much
per acre, own and operate their water
supply? We dislike to Impugn the in
telligence of the horticulturists of F.as'
Hood River, but recent events go far to
corroherate our view.
It is useless to go into details con
cerning the formation of a bonded dis
trict as they would not be appreciated.
Reassured bv Frank Massee's success
last Monday, C. L. Rogers has bought
at a fancy price, Massee's best pup, and
will hie himself to the wilds of Odell in
a short time. We congratulate him on
the bargain and wish him bushels of

ready to supply its patrons with water.

SOUTHERN WASCO' .
John Michell, who is in the city from
The Dalles to gather data for a descrip
tive pamphlet the county court is pre
paring for distribution at the Lewis and
Clark exposition, states that the south
ern part of Wasco county is tilling up
rapidly with settlers. Land there is
worth from $25 to $40 an acre. None oi
it is now vacant.
The town of Dufur is putting on city
airs, two substantial bricks are being
erected this spring, one by Johnson
Bros, and the other by llarriman,
Knowles & Co. Crops are looking well,
though a rain tlotild he appreciated.
Tygh Valley is coining into promin
ence, a newspaper having been estab
lished there two weeks ago. Wheat and
hogs are becoming a profitable combina
tion with the farmers in that section of
the county. Apples have been found
to do well there. C. A. Vanduyn is
setting out 800 trees this spring. It is
estimated that last year the Tygh Ridge
farmers marketed 250,000 bushels of
Dead Dog near Hake Oven is getting
to be a famous wheat country, one
farm thera of 2,000 acres averaged 30
bushels to the acre. It was formerly
thought that this hind was worthless
for grain, and fit only for grazing sheep.
Juniper Flat, with the two towns of
Wapanitia and Victor, claims a popula
tion of 1100. Mr. Mitchell estimates
that the population of the county will
The improvements to Hood River and
the valley were a surprise to Mr Michell,
who hadn't been here for over six years.
Michell spent his honeymoon here 24
years ago, and has ever since regarded
flood River one of the pleasantest places
on the continent.
